A language student who ended up becoming a multi-lingual world-touring jazz vocalist, Stacey Kent sings the praises of the Portuguese School: "I've spent four summers at the Language Schools studying various languages, but last summer was the first time I attended as a 'Level 1.' This was a daunting task—spending seven weeks studying a new language without knowing a single word beforehand. And yet, I could not have had a better summer! We learned quickly, and I left the course feeling extremely confident about the foundation that I've begun to build in this language. Not only is the teaching excellent, but the dedication and support from professors is immeasurable. It is their encouragement that helps you to hang in there."
